The first presentation, Bologna and the Total Student Learning Experience, is scheduled for Tuesday, November 18th at 1 pm in Blow 201. This teaching and learning workshop will focus on how faculty can learn how the Bologna Process is influencing teaching practices. The session will review how the creation of national policy links to the overarching European Union goals for student mobility that sets goals and monitors student and institutional progress.

The second presentation, The Role of Policy in Internationalization, is scheduled for Tuesday, November 18th at 6 pm in the School of Education, Holly Room. This higher education program salon focuses on the following talking points:
- Examination of the underlying policy assumptions regarding processes of internationalization, higher education reform, and institutional mission diversity.
-Implementation effects of policy on teaching and learning
-Lessons from Bologna
- Evaluation of reform efforts using assessment data - discussion of trends in Europe re quality assessment and HE performance which might put Obama's actions in context.

Recent attention of reform efforts in higher education addresses the need to internationalize campuses, but these efforts are complex and involve many campus actors, not the least of which are faculty. As the ultimate goal of policy reform is improving student learning, understanding more about the policy process and the role of faculty teaching is critical.

This event includes conference attendees for the Association for the Study of Higher Education annual conference, current students and faculty, and area alumni.
